Waste toner cartriage error

Even when I replace the cartridge with a new cartridge (did this twice) the sensor still reads full or not installed.  I have cleaned off the sensor also and not luck.  What next?  Does samsung have replacement sensors when the stop working.  The only time the printer states that it is ready is when the cartridge is out of the printer.

I've replaced the toner cartridge and waste toner bottle, but the display still says 'toner low' and 'waste toner near full'. It refuses to print, even with the old cartridges.


Then you mite want to clean the sensor that monitor the waster toner box pull out the waste toner box and look for the area that show clear plastic then look for those area of the machine and blow the old toner from those areas waste toner mite have gotten on the sensor saw they can not see the clear plastic and think that the waste toner cart is still full.

Waste Toner Error Message For Samsung CLP 550


Dr. P,
Printer will display "Waste Toner Tank Full/Not Installed" error message if the waste tank is full of toner or not installed.
  • Open the waste tank door and check for the waste toner tank.
  • If the tank is full or not intalled, install a new tank.

If you have user guide, it will show you how to install the waste toner tank.

Sometimes you will also get this error message if the Waste Toner sensor is covered with toner powders.
  1. Remove your waste tank and look for the black plastic on the right side after removing the waste tank.
  2. You sould find small openings on each side in the black casing.
  3. Use Q-tips or thin cotton object to clean the inside the small opening.
for user manual just click here:

If this solution works, please don't forget to rate it fixya

For any more question just ask me.

Thanks
Iqbal

Getting error code sc 486


Sometimes it seems to be that the sensor for the waste toner is picking up that it is full. If you clear the are that the the laser reads, many times this error code goes away. Also,, just replacing the waste toner cartridge fixes it.

Waster toner tank full/not install


The Waste Toner Cartridge must be VERY clean, especially around the "bump" directly below the left side hole. After I CAREFULLY emptied the old toner out, I used air compressor to clean every bit of toner out from inside. Then I wiped the whole area around the "bump" where the sensor "sees" if the tank is empty. Even a slight film over the area will not allow for reuse. If you do this, it works every time.

Message: waste cartridge is full or not installed


There is a possibility that the Imaging Unit needs replaced.
Or is the sensor itself unseated from its normal operating position.

Waste motor error


The wate motor transfers (you guess it) waste toner to the waste toner bottle. If the bottle fills up, the motor cannot transfer more waste to it. This is rare, for the printer should ask for a new waste toner bottle when the previous one fills. However,it happens frequently when users try to empty and clean the bottle instead of replacing it.

If a new waste toner bottle is in place, then the printer needs a new motor, which can only be purchased through an Authorized Service Center.

Waste toner tank full/not install keep displaying


The sensor for the waste toner tank is dirty or defective. The toner sensor is on the right as you look at the panel just below the liquid crystal display. There is a bump in the clear plastic just below the circular right vent port, that's where the used toner pours in. When you clean out the toner cartridge there is some residue left that makes the sensor think it's still full. Take a piece of paper towel and a small screwdriver (I'm told a bent coat hanger will work, too) and clean the inside of the sensor window inside the used toner cartridge (w/ access through the toner port). It looks like a little raised groove on the right. Just wipe it until it's clear on the inside. The sensor can now see through the window and you should be okay. Otherwise, the sensor may need to be replaced by an authorized Samsung technician. Let me know how it works out!
